Mon 6/19 at 6:40pm: It's Broadway night! See it with big-wigs from the Broadway community, talk back with Danny Burnstein and director Seth Greenleaf, followed by a party at Gym Bar

To compete in the game they had to fight their way onto the field. 400 Athletes, 26 teams, one goal: To be the next Gay Bowl Champions. F(l)ag Football is a feature length documentary that follows a group of competitive gay athletes on their journey to the National Gay Flag Football Championships. An audience and jury award-winning favorite on the 2016 festival circuit, the film interweaves footage of competitive games, tournament events, off-field relationships, and deeply personal interviews leading up to and through the "Gay Bowl" in Phoenix, AZ. Embedded camera crews capture unprecedented access to the intimate lives of the players, and what emerges is a portrait of stereotype-breaking athletes wrestling with complex identities and team dynamics, all while competing in 90-plus degree heat for the chance to be crowned champions. With everything on the line, some teams will come together and others will show their cracks, but everyone will have a chance to play out, play proud, and show the world that being gay is not a limitation in any arena, and certainly not in sports.

Gay History Walking Tour - Pride Weekend

Leave from The Stonewall Inn, 53 Christopher Street

4pm meet and depart (come early and enjoy an adult beverage from this historic gay watering hole)

Led by our professional tour guide, Professor Andrew Lear

$24 (seniors and students), $29 regular

Tickets: www.GayPrideHistoryWalkingTour.eventbrite.com

We all know about the Stonewall riots in 1969. But who knows that Mae West was arrested in Manhattan for producing a pro-gay-rights play in 1926? Or that Walt Whitman read his homoerotic poems to friends at a bar on Broadway? Professor Andrew Lear has designed this tour to bring New York's gay *history* out of the closet. On this tour, we venture into the heart of Greenwich Village, where the Stonewall riots took place and the first Gay Pride parade started a year later. But the Village's gay history goes back a century before that, to Walt Whitman's time. Like Paris' Left Bank, the Village has been the center of all of the city's many countercultures and artistic movements, from the Bohemians of the World War I period to the Beats, the Abstract Expressionists, the New York School, Pop Art, the creators of Off (and Off-Off) Broadway, and of course the gay liberation movement.
